A week in August 2013

 
First photos of some stone fruit blossom.
 
Apricots below



 
Nectarine blossom
 
 

 
 

 
Spring Satin Plumcots
 
We picked our first few of these off young trees last season.
 
They had an outstanding flavour and were delicious and juicy to eat.
 


 
 

 

An overview of where these young trees are planted.
 

 



Pruning some cherries at the moment.
Sweet Georgia to the left and Lapin to the right of the photo.
 

 
 
Two rows of Lapin. Left row unpruned right row pruned.
 

 
Another row of Lapin looking back at Bluff Rock.
This is my work environment. Not too shabby on a good day.
 


Close up of a young Sandra Rose cherry tree.
 






 
Creek above, Dam below water ready for spring.


 
I took these photos while shopping with my wife in our local supermarket.
 
American nectarines and cherries.





 
 
 
 

There's an open look at what has been going on in the orchard this month.
The seasons seem to roll around quicker all the time.
Best wishes to all.
